The symptoms you experience during detox can range from mild to severe. Withdrawal often feels like the opposite of the drug you have been using. For example, when you are withdrawing from a depressant (like alcohol or Valium) you may feel restless and agitated or have tremors. The symptoms vary between different people and different drugs. Search here to learn about withdrawal symptoms for specific drugs.
Some people experience Post Acute Withdrawal Symptoms (PAWS) which is why we often recommend detox followed by rehab. PAWS refers to ongoing withdrawal symptoms that are largely psychological and mood-related and can continue after acute withdrawal symptoms have gone away.
Symptoms of PAWS are unique to each drug. Common symptoms include:
- Hostility or aggression
- Anxiety, panic, or fear
- Irritability and mood swings
- Exhaustion or fatigue
- Inability to sleep
- Trouble concentrating or thinking
- Loss of interest in sex
- Anhedonia, or the inability to feel pleasure
- Trouble with memory
- Sensitivity to stressful situations
